France has been an extraordinary crossing point in European architecture - Romanesque pilgrimage churches en-route to Santiago, Gothic style fanning out from the Île-de-France, Renaissance ideas arriving at Fontainebleau and the Louvre, the Sun King’s Versailles creating envy in Europe’s royal courts, and the Paris of Garnier’s Opéra and Eiffel’s Tower leading on to the twentieth century and Le Corbusier. This will be a fascinating survey.
